A bit to the southwest, a Mt. Hood vacation rental in the small town of Molalla is loaded with outdoor activities. From your Molalla getaway, you can follow along the scenic Molalla River Corridor and view numerous waterfalls and geological features, hike, bike, skateboard, and shop to your heart's content. Just as you would expect, being located along a river corridor gives you access to numerous river-related activities like rafting and fishing. But Molalla is also known for its famed "Buckeroo Rodeo" where cowboys and cowgirls can tighten their chaps and test their equestrian skills with varying events beginning in April and ending in September. But that's not all! There are five city parks in Molalla, one devoted to skateboarders. Did you ever want to try sky-diving? Well, you can do that in Molalla too. SkyDive Oregon is located just west of town and caters to both first-timers and experienced skydivers. Hungry for more than adventure? In town, dining options are plentiful. Hit the Hitchin' Post Cafe for hearty breakfasts like the locals do. The Farmstead Restaurant and Pub at Arrowhead Golf Club features live music and eclectic, home-cooked meals. From Molalla, a trip to the outlet malls in Canby is less than a 15 mile drive and St. Josef's Winery is an even shorter trip at only 10 miles. Whether you pick a cabin near the river or your own private lodge, find a perfect Molalla vacation rental in this little town on the western edge of the Cascades.
